    Windham has today offered a one day special sale of a season pass a $1099. This compares to the Vail Epic pass at $939 and the Epic pass $949 which entitle participants to multiple mountains. I know there are new owner of Windham mountain but are they trying to drive away loyal families

      To compare with neighboring mountains, Hunter’s season pass is $629 and includes access to all Peak resorts and Bellayre’s is $629 alone or $759 with Gore and Whiteface. Their passes sales will be very low.

    Made some interesting finds about former lifts at Windham.

    The first two pictures were in a trip report from March 23rd, 1999. I was only 2 months old at the time. First picture is the only one I know of that shows the abandoned lower section of the B-Lift (Wheelchair Double). It appears to have had a mid load where the current starting point is and if you look closely there’s a portal tower there. It was shortened sometime between then and 2004 to de-clutter the base area, and so that there wouldn’t be a base area lift that only went to double black diamonds. It isn’t shown on old maps, but the B-Lift actually crossed over the C-Lift just after both load points. The second picture shows the G-Lift triple before it was replaced in 2006. It was relocated to the Wonderama trail to replace an older triple, and is now being replaced by the old high speed quad. The third and 4th pictures are Google Earth maps I made, comparing the current and former lift configurations. The last picture was taken between 1989 and 1993 and shows the base area before the high speed quad was built that year. You can see the C-Lift with the original chairs and the original A-Lift double that was replaced by the high speed quad. It appears to have had Doppelmayr chairs in it’s final years. I believe those chairs were moved to the B-Lift when it was replaced, and that’s when they were fitted with the custom modified Hall hanger arms.
